Design of a low-profile overhead projector

Disclosed is a design of a low-profile overhead projector. Benefits include the replacement of a vertical arm with a horizontal arm that does not block the view path of meeting participants.

One of the key distractions in meetings is the arm of the overhead projector getting in the view path and preventing the audience members from seeing portions of the slide being presented. The result is a disruption of the meeting as participants shift positions to get a better view of the screen.

The disclosed design is for a low-profile overheard projector that replaces the vertical arm on standard projectors with a horizontal arm (see Figure 1). As shown in the figure below, the top surface of the base of the low-profile projector is slanted at an angle and the arm that holds the lens and mirror extends horizontally over this surface. An edge stop is placed at the base of the projector to keep the slides on the screen and prevent them from rolling off onto the ground. This design alleviates the problems with the conventional vertical-arm design.
